Friends of Abandoned Pets
Who knew in 1992 when Friends of Abandoned Pets was officially established, that 24 years later our volunteers would still be helping cats and dogs in our community.
The amount of volunteer hours over the past 24 years has been staggering – and we’ve done it all: driving to help rescue a cat or dog in a dangerous situation; sitting out overnight with traps, trying to catch kittens, dogs and cats; giving advice related to the well-being of cats and dogs; taking part in major dog rescues; sitting with a traumatized cat or dog for hours and hours; medicating; force feeding; organizing dog walks, bake, book and garage sales and other fundraisers; reuniting lost pets with their owners; placing dogs and cats in permanent homes.
Even in the years when there were limited funds, and there were many of those, we were always able to help, in some way. Our philosophy has always been that while we can’t save every stray or abandoned cat or dog, we can make a difference in the lives of individual cats and dogs. And, we have been true to that philosophy throughout our existence.
We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished in the past 24 years and are looking forward to celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2017.
